Emilie has a new form of after-school entertainment when Albert moves in next door. Every afternoon he can be found on the front lawn, twisting his body into all kinds of crazy postures, then chanting 'om' - something he calls yoga'. Then one day something serious happens: Albert gets stuck, all twisted up like a pretzel. Albert knows what he needs and he tries to tell the grown-ups who race over to help him, but everyone keeps misunderstanding. The only person who hears Albert properly is Emilie - but will she have the courage to speak up?


In the summer, someone new moved in next door to Emily. His hair was gray and his face was wrinkled but his eyes always seemed to sparkle. His name was Albert, and he was very, very old.


Every afternoon, Albert twisted his body into all kinds of strange positions on a mat on her front lawn. 


“It’s called ‘yoga,’” he told Emily, who watched from her front porch.


When he finished, Albert sat with his legs crossed and chanted a single word: “om.”
